What is a skylight or rooflight?

A skylight or rooflight is an opening in a flat roof that provides additional natural light. A skylight is often square and is usually made of acrylic or polycarbonate: two different types of plastic that are transparent and very strong. Polycarbonate is also stronger than acrylic and is therefore also called a bulletproof skylight. In a skylight, the acrylic or polycarbonate is always slightly curved. It is important that the material from which skylights are made is hard, impact-resistant, and scratch-resistant.

A rooflight has a wider range of shapes, sizes, and materials. A rooflight is also a series of multiple windows or panels next to each other, hence the name “rooflight”. A rooflight can be flat, curved, have an elongated pyramid shape, be rectangular or square. The possibilities with a rooflight are endless.

We have been able to install many different skylights and rooflights for customers. Let yourself be inspired by different examples and discover what you like and don’t like. Based on your preferences, we can provide you with a personal recommendation.


Cost for skylight or rooflight installation

A skylight is usually smaller than a rooflight, so a skylight is often more affordable than a rooflight. A rooflight, in turn, provides more light.

The costs for installing a skylight start at € 450,- excluding VAT. Because a skylight and rooflight are often assembled to order, it is difficult to give a guideline for this. We would be happy to come to your place to carry out a free roof inspection to see what the possibilities are on your flat roof. We will then issue a non-binding quotation so that you have a good idea of the possible costs.

Our procedure for installing a skylight or rooflight
